England's Lee Westwood says it would be a "very special" moment to break Jack Nicklaus' record and become the oldest player to win the Masters.
Westwood, who turns 48 this month, is looking to win his first major and arrives at Augusta National in form.
Nicklaus was 46 years, two months and 23 days when he claimed a record sixth Green Jacket and 18th major in 1986.
"Jack has always been an inspiration," said Westwood, who played with Nicklaus during his first Masters in 1997.
"It would be great to break his record. I saw Jack a few weeks ago and I still remember the first time I played this tournament in 1997, I played the final round with Jack.
"I went out on the Saturday night and bought the iconic picture where he's following the ball into the hole on 17 with his putter. After we played on the Sunday, I said to Jack 'would you mind signing this picture for me?'
"I still have it to this day, all framed up. He put 'To Lee, enjoyed our round, best wishes, Jack Nicklaus'. There are very few people you would do that with, he is a legend and arguably the greatest player to ever play the game.
"I always enjoy speaking with Jack and picking his brains and just being in his company, so to have a chance to break one of his records would be very special."
